We are not meant to stand still in this world. We are created to grow. We begin this journey of faith at the moment of our baptism and we are never meant to stay as “Christians in Diapers”. We must constantly be plunging into the depths of what it means to be an active disciple of Jesus Christ.
Jesus says, “If you wish to be my disciple, come and follow me”. The word disciple literally translates to the word – student. We are called to follow Him and to constantly be learning and growing. Do you consider yourself a disciple? What’s the last new thing that you have learned by following Jesus?

Discover the secrets to living life well. When reading the bible, you will soon realize, that there actually is no secret. God very specifically and easily reveals to us the best way we are to live. He doesn’t want the path to a great life to be hidden from us. He reveals this path to us in His Holy Word, The Bible. We are beginning to put together a group of parishioners who want to dive deeper into the riches of God’s Word. For more information or to join our Bible Study – CLICK HERE
